Thank you so much for your interest in having your child featured on Outshine Labels!
My name is Jessica Connor and I am a wife and mother of two young daughters, Stella + Ava. Ava has a rare condition called Williams Syndrome and is my inspiration for Outshine Labels.
Originally called "Beautiful Conditions" on Instagram, I later combined it with my e-commerce store and renamed it to Outshine Labels. What has not changed is the mission.
Outshine Labels is a community for all types of "Special Needs" parents and families who we encourage to share positive stories of strength, hope, compassion, kindness, love, and everything in between as they raise and care for their child with (dis)abilities.
The stories we collectively share, make outsiders of our lives, feel inspired, happy, motivated, and most importantly - COMFORTABLE with those who are "differently-abled!" We believe that rather than spread awareness about out child's condition - we make more of an impact sharing stories about our children...who they are, why they are the same, yet different and how that's okay! We're all worthy of love and kindness!
Please answer as many of the following questions as you can, and in the best detail that you can! The more descriptive words you use, about your feelings and true emotions and detailed recollections, the better! Your stories are shared almost verbatim to how you write them; simply so that we don't take away from any of the authentic power that's within them.
Please know that you do not need to answer all of these questions! However, keep in mind that the more of them that you answer; the more content we have to write a good post (or two, or three, or more over time!)
All permission rights are given to Outshine Labels for social media, website and marketing use. Don't worry, we will tag you on social media whenever we share your story! Let's spread love, kindness and help raise awareness TOGETHER (oh! and build up your social media following too!) Because after all, the more of us that are successful - the better it is for ALL of us!
Now...let's get started!
